Holly and Eric, or Messer as he likes to be called, had never been too fond of each other. Peter, Messer’s best friend, and Alison, Holly’s best friend had both been married. Which meant that Holly and Messer had eventually began to see each other more often, since Peter and Alison had a beautiful child named Sophie. Holly and Messer were always around, the two of them always did things with the happy family. See, Peter and Alison had decided to try and set Holly and Messer up on a date. But that was way before Peter and Alison had Sophie. Messer and Holly did not click. In fact, they didn’t even make it to the restaurant because the two of them couldn’t stand each other within seconds of meeting. Messer was that obnoxious ladies man, who went through girls without a single care, and Holly was the conservative young woman who had great ambitions. The two just didn’t take a liking to one another.
Fast forward a few years, and they’re reunited once more due to the birth of Sophie. Whom the two of them loved with all of their hearts. Both Messer and Holly adored Sophie, loved her like their own daughter. They were always around, to watch her grow, help her continue to grow. But right after Sophie’s first birthday, both Messer and Holly received a heart breaking call. Peter and Alison passed away in a car accident. The first thought that ran through Messer and Holly’s mind? Was Sophie in the car? No, thankfully she wasn’t. The poor little baby was safe at home in a babysitter’s arms. Although Sophie was safe, Holly and Messer had both just lost the most important people in their lives. Things would never be the same. Who knew if they’d ever be able to even see Sophie again. They both figured that Sophie would be put in the next of kin’s house, but they were dead wrong.
Peter and Alison’s lawyer sat down with Messer and Holly and explained to them that on the will, both Alison and Peter deemed Holly and Messer as the guardians of Sophie. The dysfunctional pair were completely baffled, but decided to accept, seeing as they wanted to fulfill Alison and Peter’s wish. They both thought that parenting would be easy, just feed the baby a few times a day, play with some toys, put her to bed and have a nice long sleep. Once again, they were wrong. Being a parent to a baby who had just lost their actual parents, would be insanely difficult. They’d have their ups and downs, they’d have the lack of sleep, they’d have weariness run through their veins, but they’d have to put up with it and put up with each other.
They’re simply doing this out of love for the little baby. Sooner or later they’d have to stop fighting with each other and become a well oiled machine. They’ll soon learn how to lean on each other, and depend on one another. Parenting’s all about team work, right?
